Save the date for the upcoming European Forum on Urban Forestry (#EFUF2023) that will be held between 24 and 26 May 2023 in Poland to discuss the topic of urban forests as nature-based solutions.

Moreover, the call for abstract for this event is now open! Any person or organisation working in the field of urban forestry is invited to submit an idea or abstract for a talk, presentation or any other non-commercial contribution to the European Forum on Urban Forestry.

Summaries or abstracts should be submitted here by 6 February.

This year the focus of the call is on three themes:

  • Theme 1: Urban Forests and Urban Greening Plans
    Exploring the challenges of planning for existing tree-based urban green space, and for planning new urban forests, including citizens’ views and perceptions, and maximising services provided by urban forests.
  • Theme 2: Urban Forests, Urban Trees and Water
    Exploring the role that urban forests and urban trees can play in managing water in and around cities and towns (water buffering, reducing floods, limiting water pollution), including the impact of droughts on tree-based ecosystems.
  • Theme 3: Biotic Management aspects in Urban Forestry
    Exploring impact of pests and diseases, and the role of adaptive management to limit these impacts.
